    I have a short attention span but removing every break in his speech to cut
    a few seconds off the video is a little too much even for me. Fascinating
    story though.

  7. Maddy Kae says:

    I’m absolutely in love with this. Amazing job Trish. We all love you so
    much. <3

    Are you kidding me? Trying to blame global warming on humans roasting too
    many wooly mammoths 13,000 years ago.

    Please for the love of baby jesus, tell me it’s an April fools.

    Even so, if it were a joke, not cool. Your influence of millions of young
    minds is so immense that they drool over everything you say and would
    blindly defend it, simply because you say it is so.

    Unfortunately this is the path science is descending these days, no longer
    do they question and seek answers on their own, instead science has become
    religious in the sense people just blindly follow what someone smarter than
    them claims.

    You need to be careful of what you preach, your faithful blind masses take
    in all you say, errors, jokes and all seriousness.

    Avocados remind me of a question that needs an anwser: HOW COME I SOMETIMES

    I was expecting a Sci Show April Fools today.. Something about finding
    aliens probably but no? :(

  11. Domi Domi says:

    Am I the only one who does not like avocados? Every one seems to love it.

  12. OutlawPete says:

    the seed contains toxins? does that mean we shouldn’t eat it either? a lot
    of hype over the nutritional benefits for eating the seed (after roasting &
    grinding )

  13. Boxing Facts says:

    Barrera is a B- fighter keep it real

  14. James Karavites says:

    Hey Scishow can you guys do a video about how brass instruments work and
    produce sound? I ask because many people still have this idea that you just
    blow into them and that’s it. Thank you.

  16. K10S Fuckugoogle says:

    Well that started really interesting to end in literally no useful
    information. And what the hell is wrong with that guy? Wearing a gay jacket
    inside for a video shoot? And the hair! Is he a 13 year old in 2003?

  17. Hide and seek En hindsight says:

    I like avocado smoothie

  18. My ex-wife says:
